I was surprised the other week to see a cute little parcel from Makeup Revolution including eyeshadows, dusts and their new Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer*. I was over the moon to receive these, as it feels like it's been far too long since I reviewed eye products.
These gorgeous, shimmery eyeshadows come in the shades "I Want U" and "Make It Happen" which I think were quite cheeky names! It reminded me of the types of names that Nars use for their blushers. A creative name makes me remember the product more, as it stands out. It also makes for funny conversation "I love the new product I picked up, it's called Orgasm...". Saying "I Want U" and "Make It Happen" in a sentence could lead to anything, just saying.
Both shades have on the right, used with the Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer, and the left without. You should be able to see that with the primer, it creates more of a foil look, but will also stay on your eyes for longer. I love a good matte shade, don't get me wrong, but there is something about my taste that screams bring me the glitter. Anything with shimmer or glitter in, seems to really stand out to me, and these don't half make your eyes pop. For £1, there is surely not much you can moan about, aside possible lasting power, but that's were the eye primer comes into play.
These eye dusts are in the shades "Agonise" and "Confront", a little different to the names of the eyeshadows, but in very similar colours. At £1 each too, I was very hopeful to see great results for the small price you pay. You have to apply these gently, and press the dust onto your eye once you've applied primer, as it has a tendency to go on your cheeks if you add too much to your brush.
